comment Are there other denominations that believe in pre-human existence?
As far as denominations taking that stance, I am unaware of any at the moment. But I know many individuals outside of mormans that do. Origen apparently believed something like this and was one of the reasons cited for calling him a Heretic .

comment How do Old Earth Creationists use 2 Peter 3:8 to support the “day-age” theory?
Yeah a serious OEC like Hugh Ross probably wouldn't give this scripture to defend his position(although he uses it to try to prove a local flood). But I've heard several of his follows try to do just that, the ones I dealt with were not considering that time was meaningless to God, but that it was longer . Like a kind of cognitive dissonance. I see this allong the same lines as "If we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?" No apologeticist would use that but lay people do.

comment Why does Jesus speak of himself in the third person?
@Zoe this is a pun based on the fact that we refer to the Holy Spirit as the 3rd person of the Trinity. So when He speaks of the Father He is speaking in the 1st person according to this logic. :)

comment To a YEC, how does a metaphorical interpretation of Genesis 1-3 distort the gospel?
@bruisedreed That was an excellent edit, I have never heard anyone point that out before. I'll be sure to ask Hugh Ross that question.

Also when Jesus talks about the Holy Spirit, He's technically speaking in the 3rd person as well. ;)
